Company developing mass photometry instrumentation that analyses biomolecules with light scattering.
Refeyn spun out of the Chemistry Department at University of Oxford to commercialize technology applied to molecular massmolecular mass measurement. The company is developing scientific instrumentation called ‘mass photometry’ that uses single molecule light scattering for detection, imaging and accurate mass determination of biomolecules in solution. The technology has applications in the biopharma sector with the potential to increase productivity in protein research projects. Specific applications include mass measurement in solution, assembly and stoichiometry of protein complexes, mass measurement of heterogenous biomolecules and protein-protein interactions. Measurements are done in minutes with microliter quantities of sample. Refeyn has a table-top instrument called the Refeyn One which uses their proprietary software to automatically control the acquisition of data by performing mass analysis.
